Focus on three library weblogs : A qualitative content analysis (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the content in Swedish library weblogs. We want to examine what the posts contain, especially on the subject knowledge organization. Which themes do the weblogs have in common? How the weblog authors categorize their posts and how the readers use the comment function, are other questions we seek answers to in the thesis. We have performed content analysis where we created the code units during the process. Regarding the content in the analyzed weblogs we have come to the conclusion that it is not as closely tied to the specific libraries as we had thought. We can also see that the themes are reoccurring with minor variations. The number of categories differs between the analyzed weblogs. In many cases the category names are very similar. When it comes to the readers’ usage of the comment function it is clear that the posts seldom end up being commented. We have seen that the library weblog often is perceived as an excellent communication channel where the library can interact with their patrons. At the same time we feel that the potential of the library weblog is not fully used. The future of library weblogs is yet unknown and there are still many functions of the library weblogs left to explore. We believe that the most important thing for the survival of the library weblog is to get readers to the blog and to encourage them to interact. For what is a weblog without its readers?
